Apache blank screen at http://localhost/


I installed Apache-1.3.29 (with mod/open ssl), mySQL-4.0.18, and PHP-4.3.5C3, Perl, & Python. I used Apache Toolbox v 1.5.69 to do the source install onto my mandrake 9.2 Athlon 2500+ Shuttle box.

Sweet little program. There were a couple problems getting the versions to cohabitate, but once I got that right the install of everything went flawlessly. I used all the apache default paths and since the toolbox wil not overwrite any previous .conf files, I changed the xxxxx.conf.default file to xxxxx.conf and the xxxxx.conf to xxxxx.conf-old.

AND THEN ---

/usr/local/apache/bin/apachectl start

It started

Open Firefox 0.8 and goto http://localhost/

Nothing at all. Not even an an error mesage. If I try it apache not running, it takes me to localhost.be instead. Cute way to attract traffic.

So I stopped it and started again with ssl - entered my passphrase - httpd started. Still getting a blank screen

Did a configtest - returned syntax OK

So, what might I be doing wrong?

Check your access/error logs and run netstat to make sure it is binding to the right addresses.

First I have to say that the "Image Zoomer" extension to Firefox is an awesome tool. It made it much easier to see that screnshot.

Now I'm going to try to figure out how to run Netstat and find the logs.

FYI, there was NOTHING in the access_log. And of course "erro_log" was supposed to be "error_log"

Here's a sample of Netstat -v:

Active Internet connections (w/o servers)
Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State
tcp 0 0 192.168.1.1:33240 wma290.securedata.:http ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 192.168.1.1:33253 216.239.41.104:http ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 192.168.1.1:33258 216.239.41.99:http ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 192.168.1.1:33259 216.239.41.99:http ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 192.168.1.1:33256 207-171-182-23.ama:http ESTABLISHED
tcp 0 0 192.168.1.1:33255 207-171-182-23.ama:http ESTABLISHED

I'm very curious what the outside my home network IP addresses are.

Still pulling my hair out w/ this one. I've search the manual and Google and made ZERO progress all day. I can't believe I've been at this for 10 hours today.

Anybody got even a direction I might try next?

you need to adjust /etc/hosts and /etc/sysconfig/network to something unique. if you dont youll probably run into errors because the systemname localhost exists all over your network.

my /etc/hosts
Code:
#do not remove the following line, or various progams
#that require network functionality will fail.
192.168.1.X linuxserver.localdomain localhost
my /etc/sysconfig/network
Code:
NETWORKING=yes
HOSTNAME=linuxserver.localdomain

I have the same problem. Posted a thread on the same forum, :^) sorry!
Anyway, the interesting thing is that if you type http://localhost/index.html (presuming that that file is in your htdocs's dir) than the page is loaded without any errors. So webserver works.

I stay on top of this thread.

Succes.

That suggests that Apache doesn't know to look at the index.html file when no file is specifically asked for. For my version of Apache (2.0.58), that is controlled by a line in Apache's configuration file: "DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var index.php" (in my config file). So maybe you should check to see if there is such a line in your config file. (Mine is /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf.)

Nice, but that would be to easy. I have configured DirectoryIndex with index.html etc. And when I just type http://localhost/ I get an segfault in my error_log file!

But thanks anyway.
